Wild card entry for P1

Taken from the P1 website...

"The new British-based Team Konrad Propulsion Systems outfit will use a US-built Velocity 390 hull, powered by Mercury Racing engines. Team boss Daniel Cramphorn will take the pilots’ seat, with Kim Collins on throttles and Barry Keen in the navigators’ seat.

They’re also planning to enter the Portuguese Grand Prix of the Sea in Portimao on September 26-28, and could consider an assault on the SuperSport class title in 2009 if all goes well.

“Since visiting a couple of Powerboat P1 races last year, I decided that I had to be involved in the championship,” said Cramphorn. “The events were simply amazing. The professionalism, excitement and glamour of the event had me hooked straight away and I began talking to Velocity about building a boat for me to run in the series. If everything goes well this year, we’ll hopefully be campaigning the whole season in 2009.”

If is the Velocity lurking about at drivers the last couple of weeks, it a very nice boat. What happened to their CTC entry though?

Dunno about that, there's a good few signs that's it's had a refurb, I reckon it's a few years old.

On monday, the foredeck lifting eye pulled the deck skin off the bulkheads when it was craned. seems the lifting eye tie rod wasn't attached to the hull structures.

See Skater are beefing up the construction for 2009 with the hull problems this year.

Great too see another taking up the gauntlet & wish them all the best for the racing
